In the Los Angeles Herald, of April 7th, j
in commenting on the appointment of Gov
ernor McCormiek to the position of Assist
ant Secretary of the Treasury, the editor
claims to know Mc. well, and personally
cannot say anything against him, but can
lind 50 men who will testify to anything the
Herald man may ask them to. As for Mr.
.McCormiek drawing unlimited amounts of
Go-crnmcnt rations, we know it is false.
As to his having a store in one end of the
building occupied by him as an office, we
know to be equally false. Ve have been a
resilient of Arizona since Governor 3IcCor
mick came here as Secretary of the Terri
tory, ami can lind hundreds who will testify
to the fact that he never had a grocery store,
or drew ration?, as tntcd by the Herald.
"We know that during the year 1SC4 pro
riaions could not be purchased at all times,
and Mr. McCormiek borrowed some pro
visions from the Commissary at Fort Whip
ple, and lent them to miners who could not
buy, and thus saved many a good man from
going hungry. We have known many an
instance where Mr. McCormiek took money
and bought provisions for parties who had
no money or credit, and gave them to them.
The many kindncssc shown to the early
pioneer by him will long be remembered,
and us for the gentlemen who lay around
whisky shop, in Los Angeles, and blow their
horn alout such men as Governor McCor
miek. wc say blow, you cannot harm him.
lie is beyond your reach, and all you know
Some one who writes for the Citizen
makes assertions, but never backs up snid
assertions. He claims he is the escencc of
purity and truthfulness, which is all very
nice for him to claim, but his renders think
differeutly; they are under the impression
that he romaiurs. The Citizen can't see
any truth in what the Mixei: states but
has, as yet, failed to discover one siuglc
false assertion made by us, and we defy it
to do so.
We have stated that the number of men
claimed, by the Citizen man, to lmve been
killed bv Indians, whs false. We have
claimed that the Indians who committed
the recent depredations in IMma county
were Warm Springs Agency Indians. We
have claimed, and do so still, that Gen.
Kautz was not. and is not, responsible for
acts committed by Indians who slip in
from New Mexico, commit hellih deeds
on citizens of tills Ti-rritory, nud then slip
out and claim protection from the Agent m
New Mexico. We claim that Sonoia beeves
issued at San Carlos to the Indians, at an
average 01 uu it., i not weigh that
amount. We claim, that when the Govern
ment purchases No. 1 Hour and pays $S kv
hundred for it, that the Aent hns no right
to purchase corn meal and shorts at $H Mr
hundred and charge the Government eonract
price. We claimed that TOO to $00 Indians
were absent from the San Carlos reservation,
and that snine one was drawiug the rations
of the absentees. We lutck our assertion in
reference to thus- Indian ln-im; absent, by
such men as L. H. St. James, lt trader at
Camp Apache, C, li Cooler. Dan O'Leary.
James Oneal, Mud Moreland. Win. Gilson.

Thomas P. Gil more, in a letter to the Min
is hearsay. Not a man in Los Angeles
county am say, of his own knowledge, when
he is pinned down to the truth, that he
knows these things stated in the Herald to
be true, but are in the same boat with the
Herald, and will have to admit that some
one else told him so.
That our readers may know what trash
the Herald publishes, we give the following
as a part, which is a fair sample- of nearly a
column of the Herald's tirade on Mr. 31c
Ormick: ''Wc do not impeach Gov. McCormick's
integrity of our own personal knowledge,
but we can get fifty men. in a very short
while to testify that he is as corrupt a little
man h ever lived, ami they wih produce
evidence and detail of narative to support
their allegation-. They tell a story of Mc
Cormiek that when he came to Arizona as
Secretary of the Territorial Governor he
had an unlimited order for govcn.nu.nl,
rations. His office w.i in one end of a build
ing at Pre.-c tt, and in the other end was a
gnccry store, with a communicating door, j tion verv w 11: second, from ores containinir

Dick s otticc and through this door into the

who dwelt in the canyons round about, A
good deal of money could be made in this
ivay, and such a training is calculated to
qualify a man to lind out any chincks and
crannies in the Treasury Department, or
any other, for that matter. Had Dick suc
ceeded id getting himself appointed Secre
tary of tha lnterior, what lashlus and lav
ins'of money he would have made, in the
opinion of those who know him best i There
would have been lush for all his friends, too,
for McCormiek is not 'a oner.'
"If? such appointments are to be dealt out
to uj, together with an unlimited amount of
cant about purity, reform, and all that, it is
haul to say what wc shall come to."
